I make music because it's fun. I play by ear (since I was very young), never stuck with lessons, and mainly try to write my own stuff. I prefer not to sample when making my music, but that's not to take away from the talented folks who produce cool stuff by sampling.
My first album is up on my website, ronaldjenkees.com (download or physical copy) and on iTunes.
I also have some videos up on YouTube (youtube.com/ronaldjenkees) where I jam out and play new stuff I'm working on.
In case you're interested, my equipment consists of a Korg Triton Le, Yamaha Motif XS8 (not used on 1st CD), and I do all of my arranging in FL Studio where I use a few random VST's as well, most of them free.
